The Choices We Make...


Lucy has become really good at playing "pretend" lately. It's nice for me, because she can actually entertain herself in self-play for quite a while, instead of constantly needing me to assist and/or entertain. Yesterday morning, she came into the family room and told me she was "painting the walls." Umm..yeah..I decided to see what she meant by that. She was using a barbecue basting brush (yep, she considers that a toy and we let her), and pretending to brush the wall. Since I can see where this could go, per her artistic interpretation of painting with a night light on her bedroom walls, I told her that probably wasn't a good idea. She thinks a minute and comes back with:
"Ohh...okay Mom..how about the floor? That's a good choice!"
I guess our technique of offering "two choices" is really sinking in. Thoughtful problem-solving by a 2-year-old. I like it!
